WSP | Proud members of the 20 x 20 Campaign

Published: October 17, 2018

Waterford Sports Partnership is proud to be a member of the 20 x 20 campaign, presented by the Federation of Irish Sport. The aim of the movement is to give increased profiling to girls and women involved in sport at all levels and to grow involvement in female sport and physical activity by 20% by the end of 2020.

20×20 is about creating a cultural shift in our perception of girls and women in sport. By increasing visibility of women’s sport it will become a greater part of who we are and what we follow. There is already so much to celebrate when it comes to women’s sport in Ireland, but there isn’t enough noise. The initiative seeks to change the subliminal bias in the Irish psyche that exists around girls and boys, or women and men, when it comes to sport. The name of the initiative is shorthand for 20% by 2020, these are the targets set for the initiative:

20% more media coverage of women in sport by the end of 2020

20% more female participation whether at player, coach, referee or administration level by the end of 2020

20% more attendance at women’s games and events by the end of 2020

This isn’t a ‘women for women’ initiative, it’s ‘all of society for all of society’. If sport is good, which we know it to be, then more sport is better. If we all play, we all win.  20×20 is asking all sections of Irish society to show their stripes and pledge one small action to increase the visibility of women’s sport in Ireland because if she can’t see it, she can’t be it.

Waterford Sports Partnership | 20 x 20 Charter
We have committed to…
Increasing Participation: Waterford Sports Partnership commits to actively increasing female participation for Waterford Sports Partnership events/programmes by an overall average of 20% by the year 2020 in a number of targeted areas.
Increasing Media Coverage: Waterford Sports Partnership commits to actively increasing media coverage of female events/programmes and initiatives led by Waterford Sports Partnership and/or in the Waterford area by 20% by 2020.

We encourage clubs, community groups & media across Waterford to help us on our mission to support this great initiative. What can you commit to?
